In honor of Valentine’s Day, I just published a gallery of photos from some of the weddings that we have had the honor of hosting at The Morning Star. Unfortunately, I don’t have photos from all of the weddings, but I hope that you enjoy the images that we do have. Since most of our weddings are garden weddings, the gallery includes lots of garden photos.
A special after-dinner coffee made with dark chocolate and chocolate vodka. Don’t forget to dip your strawberry in the whipped cream before drinking! Happy Valentine’s Day!
Valentines’ Mocha (serves 2)
1 c. fresh-brewed, good decaf coffee
1 oz. dark chocolate
1 oz. chocolate vodka
1 T. dark brown sugar
1/4 c. heavy cream
2 large, ripe strawberries (cleaned and stemmed)
1. Place coffee, chocolate, vodka and dark brown sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir occasionally until chocolate and brown sugar are melted and blended into the coffee.
2. Meanwhile, whip cream until it holds soft peaks.
3. Pour coffee into two glass coffee mugs. Garnish mugs with strawberries. Top with whipped cream and cinnamon sugar. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
